Once upon a time, in 1973, a new university was born in Lisbon to be open and accessible to all, in an innovative way - NOVA. Now that it is celebrating its 50th anniversary, what we want is to continue to be young and creative in the way we teach, research and create value for society, leaving an indelible mark for future generations.
2023 will be a year of celebration with a varied program of activities:
THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
In partnership with MNAC and the University of Porto, the project consists of exhibiting works of art - vertical galleries - on NOVA campuses promoting an art circuit.
Urban Art at NOVA
